That mainboard has a new bios available

Any particular reason to use that kernel ?
Do you have xf86-video-intel installed ?

no i dont i am using it with the default drivers

i just installed the xf86 video intell and the resolution is at 1600x1024 so uninstalled it plus there where some screen tearing at boot do i have to make a resolution with x randr?with the vesa drivers on the defaulys viideo linux there is a resolution of 1920x10980 the screen just doesn stretch all the way

You could tweak the config file
Mind you, with the

There might persist the issue you have.

Yes, you can add custom resolutions with xrandr or simply use arandr as is a visual front end for xrandr.

well the thing is with the vesa drivers there is no refresh rate and there is only one resolution for some reason. it said no resolution only default ..... so il stick with video linux drivers so i have to edit the config to open up the screen at 1920x10980?

hi i am trying to edit my xorg.conf file properly in arch to just set the primary display on my hdmi and not my laptop screen i use arandr but it always goes back to default as i am using openbox as a de now i edited the autostart with xrandr --output HDMI1 --mode 1920x1080 but doest work &

xrandr --output HDMI1 --mode 1920x1080 _60 ***
